I have a 6 inch Ridgid, and I replaced the cutter head with a spiral carbide head. Works great, and I have successfully used extensions. Ridgid used to make a slippery top outfeed support. And I bought a couple. Once set to the right height, which took a bit of set and reset, they worked great as infeed and outfeed supports. I was able to do some 7 foot tall bed posts.

That said, what everyone said about the longest jointer tables you can get is dead on accurate. And an 8 inch jointer would be great. I’d have one if I had room for it. And you really want the spiral carbide cutter head. Trust me. It’s fun spending your money.

But you can get along just fine with a basic 6 inch jointer with straight blades.
